planetary imaging - how would you rate this seeing?

Took this at Astrofest. From memory it was a little windy earlier in the night when I shot this. Used my DBK21 on C8 (no barlow or powermate for this shot). Used Craterlet for capture and it looked fine at the time, but now looks all magenta and not sure why. I'm having trouble with the codecs but I'll sort that out later as this was just a test.

So what sort of seeing would you rate this as? How do you know where you sit on the scale?

Looks a little blurry to me, but not sure how normal that is before stacked and processed etc. I had focused with Bahtinov mask. Could collimation be an issue?

Little over 300kB jupiter.wmv movie 10s long.

How does this compare to your planetary movie clips before stacking?

Hard to tell, Troy, due to the small-ish image scale and the overwhelming red/pink colour cast.

But if pressed, I'd put it at around 5-6 out of 10.....maybe....
